“Great food, service and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

My husband and I ate there recently while staying in Hanalei. Postcards café is a really quaint little cottage with great atmosphere. It is mainly vegetarian, with the exception that they serve seafood. We had the latter, and had two different kinds of fish. Both delicious. We just had room for dessert - delicious! The service was very attentive and friendly.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We really enjoyed our meal at Postcards Cafe. The food here is fresh and flavorful. They have good options for vegetarians as well. The staff was professional and polite. I would return on my next visit to Kauai.

“Delicious seafood, a must try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We had dinner with some friends who had previously eaten here. I must say that the food was very good.
I ordered a Caesar salad and the Seafood Sorrento, a seafood pasta with fish, shrimp and scallops, oven-dried tomatoes, braised organic greens, goat cheese, red onions and garlic, sauteed in a light chardonnay sauce, it was delicious. Everyone else also commented on how good their food was while we dined.
We had arrived early to avoid any crowds but it soon became very busy, however,
the service remained good through out our meal.
There is some road traffic noise if you dine outside, something to consider.
Inside, the atmosphere in the dining room was festive, we will definitely eat here again.

“Great seafood and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

The wait staff were really professional -- two cuts above most other places in Hanalei. Our dishes were inventive and tasty.

“Lovely little eatery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

When we first made our way into Hanalei, this little restaurant came into view. We tucked it away as a must try. Our second night here we did. Having a restricted diet (gluten issues), I asked our waitress about options. She suggested the curry dish. It was very flavorful; a little spicy for my taste but yummy nonetheless. My husband had a seafood pasta that looked amazing. We dined outside on the deck - I would have given this 5 stars had it not been so oppressively hot. Don't miss this little treasure in Hanalei.
